More about Buel and Mary Pickett

I have previously posted a little bit of information about Buel and Mary Pickett. I wanted to find out more about them, just in case that Mary E___ might have been a daughter. Even though I found out that she wasn’t, I did find some census information that tells us a little bit more about Buel and Mary.

According to the 1860 census Buel was employed as a gardener and he and Mary had a 2 year old son named William O.

On the 1880 census William was 22, living at home, and was employed at a watch factory.

The next census I found for this family was 1900. It states that Mary was the mother of one child, and that the child was no longer living.

It is also interesting that all the census records state that Mary was born in Maine, not New Hampshire. Just an example of how someone might need to do further research to find absolute facts.
